Spacey Speaks Out on Marriage Equality (Without the Obnoxious “BTW I’m Gay” Speech)

While attending Petra Nemcova’s 2008 Happy Hearts Gala, where he was auctioning off a date with himself, Kevin Spacey spoke out on Prop 8, telling a reporter “there’s no doubt that election night was a bittersweet night. But in some ways, these kinds of setbacks allow for a bigger fight, more challenges, and eventually we’re going to get it right.”

Spacey, a member of the Anderson-Cooper-Club-for-Men-Who Won’t-Comment-on-Their-Sexuality-Even-After-It’s Blindingly-Obvious-to-Everyone did not use the occasion, as Wanda Sykes did on Saturday, to talk about his own personal sexuality, which has, as of late, included publicly spanking young men while on vacation. Though when asked about Elton John‘s assertion that civil unions ought to do, Spacey replied:

“Well, I haven’t heard what Elton has said about it, and I don’t really know the particular laws in London with respect to whether they just have civil unions or…Look, I think at the end of the day, if people are given rights, and the same basic rights that any individual is given, then we are in fact honoring the Constitution of the United States. Anything less than that is unfair.”
